COLUMBIA, S.C. — Joe Biden has won the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary, his first victory of the 2020 campaign.
The Associated Press and CBS called the race for him based on exit polls. The numbers early on showed him easily winning the state.
The candidates on the ballot for voters were Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Steyer, Amy Klobuchar, and Tulsi Gabbard. Technically, five other candidates appears, but they all withdrew from the race. Votes casts for them, however, were still tabulated.
The big prizes are the 54 pledged delegates at stake but more important, a chance for some candidates to breathe new life into their campaigns or for one to cement his status as the front-runner.
